With thousands of care homes across the UK facing the same challenges, the team at Miele has decided to bring people together to share the excellent examples of best practice that are happening around the country when it comes to dealing with infections.
The last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for the social care community and care homes have very much been on the front line when it came to delivering care to our most vulnerable at what has transpired to be the most difficult time.
Not only have care home managers had to think about how to keep their residents safe but they have also had to consider the health and welfare of their staff. The media was awash with stories of care staff who chose to isolate at their place of work to protect both the residents and their own families from the risk of infection transferring between locations.
Never has it been more important for the care home community to come together as one and share the hints and tips that will help us to overcome what is sure to be a challenging winter period.
The Government is already warning that it is likely that COVID will take hold again during colder weather and that the vaccinations, whilst fantastic when they were first given at the start of the year, may not afford many the level of protection that they would hope for.
In an interactive discussion on 3rd November, hosted by Care Home Professional, Miele will bring care home managers together to talk through the day to day challenges of dealing with infection prevention and control in a care home as well as looking at how best to protect staff at a time of increased risk.
Miele will also be on hand to answer questions about their products and how they can help in the battle to prevent another COVID pandemic.
